to the president, which a lot of the politicians have not really been doing that much now that the election is over, and so, he got a better reception than maybe anybody else, just in terms of an exciting everyone, and so it was notable that in the straw poll he did as well as he did. host: also, sarah palin, the previous nominee, a headline this morning, sarah palin brings down the house at the conference, and she is pictured in newspapers around the country gulp.he big what was that the >> it was a great prop. they were criticizing michael bloomberg, going after the many mentality, as she sees it, and she has had a much lower profile since the election. she is not on television. she no longer has a television contract. but the crowd still loved her. she had a lot of very funny jokes for this audience. among thelly not seen conservative activists as a politician so much anymore as sort of a thought leader in the movement or an entertainer is not the right word, but moving in that direction. host: and this is the headlines from "new york daily news." here is more with the former vice-presidential n
up to the 2014 primary elections. about 15 minutes. >>>> two years ago the president told a lie about the supreme court decision called citizens united. the case struck a huge blow. the president of citizens united is up next. he has proposed document series since 2004. please welcome david bossie. [applause] i'm president of citizens united. it has been a big year, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. it is great to be back here as we come together for our 40th time. citizens united is doing it again this year, where we get a chance to show off some of the groundbreaking conservative films available today. conservatives need to think of new and innovative ways to develop and deliver our message to a broad our audience. one of those ways is through film. fellow conservatives, i am going. fall, but the conservative movement is as strong as ever. more voices are being heard here in this hall and across the nation because we are fighting for our rights and the traditional american values we all share. we believe in american exceptionalism, not obama's socialist agenda. unfortunately, so
rejected in the election. tomorrow, republicans are expected to vote for the ryan budget overwhelmingly and that has some democrats licking their chops. "the hill" reports that the democrats are ready to slam gop on the ryan budget putting this out on tut this ad before the 2 election. so go ahead, republicans, vote for that ryan budget. the american people are going to have a very different vote for you very soon. joining me now is congressman -- democratic congressman grayson and cynthia tucker. >> good to be here, reverend. >> it might be the worst one yet. how do you explain these republicans in the house? >> it's bad for seniors, bad for children, and it's bad for everyone, even white guys. it raises the debt by $6 trillion. that's $20,000 for every man, women, and child in this country for the sake of giving a $400,000 tax break to millionaires. the republicans are literally trying to bribe millionaires with their own money. >> cynthia, a new poll shows that paul ryan's favorability rating before the election in august was 50%. now it's down to 35%. they are following someone who
and listen to the president on this. >> we're after an election now. i think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in benghazi and i'm happy to cooperate in any ways that congress wants and we have provided every bit of information that we have and we will continue to provide information, everything about that, we've had more testimony and more paper provided to congress than ever before, and congress is sort of running out of things to ask. >> well, look, the president's preamble to the statement says it all. we're after an election. before the election, after this happened on the anniversary of 9/11 the president was less than truthful with the american people and tried to keep a lid on this for his own political purposes, didn't match his message. after the election he claims he's given everything. what more can we give. we've given papers. mr. president it's not the papers that you give it's the papers that are relevant and the identification of the witnesses who were there and experienced the attacks and responded to the attacks and saved livelis. these are the peopl
newspaper this morning -- a story by gina smith for the island. turnout will decide today's election for the first congressional seat in south carolina. gina smith is joining us on the phone this morning. gina smith, tell me about this race. who is running and why? guest: good morning. this is like christmas morning for me. i'm so excited. this is really an exciting race, because 18 republicans, two democrats, an incredibly crowded field but some of the names in this race just make it delicious to watch. we have mark sham ford, the former governor who most of the nation remembers as the guy who slipped out of the country in 2009 so he could visit his mistress, and he -- everyone thought he was hiking the appalachian trail but he was up with a female. so governor sanford is back on his redemption tour, we also family member 's and steven colbert, the comedian, his sister. and a lot of mudslinging which outh carolina is infamous for. host: so sanford is is leading for the primary? guest: yes. it was a comeback story that you thought if it happened it would be five or eight years from n
's list -- reviews you can trust. oh, angie? i have her on speed dial. >> well, there's our election music back again. so soon? maybe not. and maybe not too soon. one of america's most respected political forecasters is today offering his first full prediction of the 2014 mid terms. and you know president obama has been focused on those, as a lot of his behavior since he won his second term has we are told been focused trying to recapture the house for the democrats. and our next guest has an eye looking ahead on the president's chances of doing that. larry sabado, good to see you again. >> nice to see you and glad people can't reach through the television to strangle. >> megyn: have you enjoyed your break and have a nice time? you've been putting it to good use, trying to forecast the next big election. as i say you're not alone. the president seems focused on the goal of reclaiming the house for the democrats and the democrats do indeed have a much higher approval rating in the house than the republicans. and so you say what about the dems' chances of doing that? >> well, they're c
about his plans to compromise after the u.s. election. >> after my election i'll have more flexibility. >> as in putin. the pentagon is scrapping phase four of the european missile defense. the sm-3 block missile interceptors to stop intercontinental ballistic missiles or icbms like the ones iran is attempting to build. the pentagon said the decision has nothing to do with russia. >> let me emphasize the strong and continued commitment of the united states to nato missile defense. that commitment remains ironclad. >> we lost a bargainship, serious one i believe. >> others say the stage four were never viable and wouldn't be ready soon enough. >> the military implication of not developing phase four is not that great. the existing program is probably good enough. >> initial reaction from russia suggests their leaders do not feel "appeased." russia deputy foreign minister said this is not a concession to russia and we don't see it as such. >> bret: jennifer griffin at the pentagon. thank you. iran says it has launched domestically built destroyer in the caspian sea. this is video from ir
to acknowledge it or not, we have divided government. the american people elected a republican majority in the house, and our job is to make the case for our policies, find common ground where it exists and see if we can make this divided government work, and that is what we intend to do. we owe the american people a responsible balanced budget. that's what we are delivering today, and i urge support of this resolution. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. all time for debate has expired. under the rule the committee rises. the speaker pro tempore: mr. chairman. the chair: mr. speaker, the committee of the whole house on the state of the union having had under consideration house concurrent resolution 25 and pursuant to house resolution 1 2 i report the -- 1 2 i report the con-- 122 i report the concurrent resolution back to the house. the speaker pro tempore: the chairman of the committee of the whole house on the state of the union reports that it has had under consideration house resolution 25 and pursuant to house resolution 122 reports the concurrent resolution back t
is the surest way to lose the next election, that is one of the conclusions? >> right. it says that you can't act hostile to immigrants or hispanic americans or have hostile rhetoric and expect them to vote for you. it may not be the number one issue for immigrant americans or hispanic americans but it is one of those issues where you have to sound like you're welcoming before they can look at other issues. so that was one of the areas where they recommended. and frankly, a lot of republicans are already on board with this, leading the way is marco rubio obviously and the gang of eight which is pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. jon: we've seen president obama going in for soft media interviews, "people" magazine, "the view", "the daily show" with jon stewart. republicans have to do the same thing according to this report. >> sounds a little bit frivolous but maybe it is but one of the suggestions in the report that republicans do more apearns poos on colbert report and daily show and do interviews with "us weekly." they have very serious proposals in the report. some things whic
. or is there another way out? jessica williams has more. >> with the divisive election behind us america's citizens are moving past partisan talking points to engage in a reasonable discussion of -- >> i hate the united states government. >> really? >> yes ma'am. >> why? >> because they are trying to oppress us. the united states government is retiring. >> right, okay. >> so apparently in texas people like larry and lynn are tired of living under the jackboot of a democratically elected government hell bent on stripping them of freedoms they hold dear. >> one of the things that texas is loves, you can still talk -- allows, you can still talk on the cell phone and text while you are driving. >> really? >> yes, that's how much freedom texans want to keep. >> and if we can't even decide on things like that, they are huge tyrants. >> jon: what does the word tyrant mean to you as opposed to what it means to everybody else. >> tyrant like hitler or lincoln who murders the people for their own political gain. >> you think lincoln is tyrant? >> yes, ma'am. >> it's not something you normally hear. >> no, it
behalf and political benefit in the case of the united states to help them win election. he was saying your political leaders respects going to take the risks unless you push them and force them to take risks. it was an interesting play. particularly coming as it did after what he said in the press conference. >> bret: i would attribute that to rhetoric. look, obama understands that with what is happening around israel, egypt in hands of the brotherhood, rockets landing today from gaza, chemical weapons probably loose in syria. hezbollah on the northern border. and iran today announcing it would destroy tel aviv if there is an israeli attack. in that kind of uncertainty and hostility, no way they could be asks to take risks today. number one priority is iran, number two is syria. >> bret: last thing on iran. he reiterated iran must not get a nuclear weapon. and cannot be contained. peres said america is looking for peace but if somebody threatens peace america is not a chicken. >> this whole conversation, i don't see thissed are call shift that you are portraying. israel go beyond the
a runnoff election we're told next month. if he pulls through on the republican side and this is interesting, he would then face his democratic challenger, elizabeth colbert bush. she is the sister of political sat at that rift, stephen coal barrett. that would be an interesting race. it would take over the seat left vacant by tim scott, who was appointed to the u.s. senate. watch that south carolina race. >>> all right. back to the drawing board now in the cyprus after lawmakers reject a wildly unpopular plan to raid people's personal bank accounts. you can imagine why that didn't go over too well as part of their effort to secure a bailout from the eurozone and the imf without their help the tiny island's bank sector would most certainly collapse. that could potentially threaten other national economies. these things are often domino effects as you know. greg palkot is live in london. what is the latest on this deal, greg. >> reporter: you're right, martha. people are scrambling blink to prevent another way for cyprus to go bankrupt and dragging rest of europe down with it. in the cypriot
election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing. [applause] now, why is that? i didn't run a campaign on jobs and the economy, jobbing and the economy, jobs and the economy an
if you have an election like 2012 where there were a lot of things that made you feel like republicans could have won. you have the president who was not very popular. you have very high on a plug. you have a very weak economy. it was interesting that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession in come on it went down $5,000 a year. families were doing worse, yet in the campaign, obama ran an extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won freckly at a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. allowed obamaple to define romney. romney thether than fighting romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say what did we do wrong. the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape certainly -- i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed people to see if we should change the name of the party. for 40 years, the most number of republi
in elections, put out a press release blasting her, saying she would rather be in washington as a right wing celebrity than solving problems back in minnesota for minnesota's middle class. remember, she got a scare back in november. her election, her congressional election was closer than she expected and democrats are hoping to beat her this time. >> we certainly appreciate the response. it doesn't seem to back up the claim, though, that this health care will literally kill women, children and senior citizens. a lot of the things she's claiming right now about the government will be able to select who gets care or not, you could say about insurance companies right now, choosing who gets coverage or not. >> that's a great point. it doesn't back that up. she and other republicans, you know, have argued for years they believe obama care will ultimately mean people will lose their insurance and their health will be in danger. of course, she took that to a whole other level by saying that they would literally be killed, which you're right, she doesn't address in the statement. >> dana, appreciat
is that, it depends on you are going obamacare, as you say. the american people spoke in the election that they did not want that repealed, but you continue to do that. i think it is dishonest. i heard you earlier when you stated that you are not even a part of that. you guys did not want to participate in forming that deal. what is sad about it, it is part of something you republicans wanted to do years ago. i feel that you guys, both sides, are fighting the american people. it is unfortunate, because we're the ones that sent you guys there, and you act like you are not working for the people and your job is to work for the people. .uest: i cannot agree more thanks. the president's health care law, and i rarely call it obamacare. the president calls it obamacare, i do not. i call it the president's health care law or the aca. please hear me, this law, the current law will harm, i believe as a physician, will harm the ability of your dr. to take care of you. that does not make any sense to me. it is important, when we believe that is the case, we would be irresponsible if we do not pr
t moving into the next cycle of e elections and announced yesterday he is going to spend $12 million of his own money in the senate races. these are not even senate races. these are in states where he thinks we can get the votes from senators for the gun safety measures that are now in the u.s. senate. so this is the influence of gun safety legislation, including the assault weapons ban that president obama wants out of the senate. on "meet the press" yesterday, michael bloomberg said yeah, it's my own money and i think it's certainly appropriate that this is the way that i spend it. >> if i can do that by spending some money and taking the nra from being the only voice to being one of the voices so the public can really understand the issues, then i think my money would be well spent and i think i have an obligation to do that. >> bill: yes, i remember he did won, his candidate, i for get her name right now won that special e ladies and gentlemen to take reverend -- not reverent but jesse jackson, junior's seat in chicago. she didn't have a prayer un
issues. people are hoping to use these issues to beat the other party in the next election. let's get through that, and start fixes problems and i hope we get a down payment on this problem next year. bill: jonah goldberg, fox news contributor. good morning, jonah. is he on track for the right calendar, to get that done this year? >> to get the budget done? or get the budget in balance? i mean, at least he, at least paul ryan has got a budget. barack obama hasn't released one yet but, i don't know what the schedule will look like on the budget going forward it is still, it is controlled chaos right now. bill: what i see on the calendar is maybe late summer, if you want to get a deal together. i think that is what he was refering to on sunday. but you also have paul ryan saying that the debt is not an immediate crisis. and that was pretty much a headline that came out of one of his interviews. i will talk about john boehner in a moment here. how did you remark on the way ryan categorized that? >> look, i think he is basically right. technically we're not in a debt crisis. we don't have
single idea, every single individual from the most junior member just elected two months ago to the most senior member who has been here for 40 years, if you have a budget idea, you get to have it heard on the floor of the house. in this case, mr. speaker, that's going to be six buckets we are going to look at -- budgets we are going to look at tomorrow. six budgets. mr. speaker, i believe having an open process is important. we made in order the progressive caucus budget. that progressive caucus budget trillion.es by $5.7 unashamed, unabashed. tough economy, let's raise taxes by $5.7 trillion. and let's increase spending even more than we are today. i'm glad that that budget's going to be here on the floor. congressional black caucus raises taxes $4. trillion. mr. van hollen's substitute raises taxes $1.2 trillion. and you saw the chart the chairman of the rules committee had on the floor of the house here earlier. we don't have a tax problem, we have a spending problem in this country. if we took everything from everybody, we still wouldn't have enough money to pay for all the promises

friend bebe. he knows, benjamin netanyahu just won re-election like the president has. the netanyahu is likely to be in the job for a while. he is fated to have to deal with him. so it makes sense to have this kind of at least, get the relationship back into at least a, some kind of, lack of hostility at a minimum. jon: it was written in one of the papers that the president offered to israel or israelis the kind of warm embrace that they are accustomed to getting from american presidents but they hadn't gotten from this president up till now. >> no, they haven't. there is no question about that. in fact the first term was full of testy exchanges and i think that the president thought, okay, i can twist israel's arm and make them do this. it turns out he really can't. he needs their trust. now he also went to ramallah and met with the palestinian authority leader where they were a lot warier about u.s. commitments and you think he discovered that, there is still a long, way, jon, for there to go between if we get peace between the palestinians and israelis. it is an interesting questi

netanyahu has just been re-elected. so there were a series of miscalculations. but i think that what i would like to remind people of is that there is a tendency in the arab world, and possibly around the world to always say, america is just wrong it's america's fault. america didn't deliver. i think to some extent there is absolutely truth to that. but i think that it's also important for people in the region, for people like me, for people in the arab world, to come to grips with their own responsibility about what they can do. obviously it's very difficult for the palestinians to feel like they have the upper hand because they're certainly in a very difficult position, and they're not the strongest party at the negotiating tableful but it doesn't help the issues to just blame everything on the united states, and that is something that is ingrained a lot of people's thinking. >> host: what fascinated me, it's just a jumping off point, this private disagreement between the president and hillary clinton on how to approach the conflict. to ask you, were there lots of disagreements you could t
're ready to because nobody is dealing with this. >> greta: and the number, the 68%, the elected leaders of both parties don't think it's a big deal. where is the disconnect, the republican speaker and the democratic president. >> the disconnect because they can't seem to reach an agreement, once again kind of setting us up for kicking the can down the road and part of what's created this problem. we've kicked the can down the road so often we've got this tremendous debt. when he came into office, 7, 8 trillion dollars. it's now 16 trillion. i think it was 9 trillion to 16 trillion almost double in five years. we've never had an increase like that except maybe the second world war because we were building up for a massive worldwide war. >> greta: do you think that washington would get the message, another part of the poll that says 85% of the american people think that the government should be forced to balance its budget. 85%. >> of course, it should be forced to balance its budget. every city, every state in this country has to balance its budget. every business has to balance its budg
finished first in a special election primary for his old house seat, but he did not get enough votes to avoid a runoff. our jim acosta is in charleston, south carolina. >> reporter: fred, after he was left for dead in the political wilderness here in south carolina, mark sanford may be the comeback kid. sanford finished way out in front of 15 other republican opponents in what was sometimes a nasty and heated gop primary. but because he failed to capture more than 50% of the vote, he'll have to compete in a runoff against one of his challengers named curtis bostik still nearly after being forced out of his governor's office four years ago after misleading voters about an extramarital affair, it's a remarkable turnaround for the former governor, one he talked about us last night. here's what he had to say. >> you guys will come up with your own definitions on these things and we'll not interrupt -- what i learned a long time ago is the media's going to do what the media's going to do. >> sure. but this must feel like redemption. >> it's incredibly humbling. as i just said. on many dif
